Another SNL two-fer this week!
First up, Rob and I returned to the mics to breakdown everything Zach Galifianakis on this week's SNL. We even broke format to talk about the musical guest, Of Monsters and Men. As an added bonus, we each got in our sketch predictions for next week's Kristen Wiig episode.

Rich Picks The SNL Sketch of The Week
Not everyone wants to spend 90 minutes watching Saturday Night Live in its entirety. Each week, I’m posting my favorite sketch of each episode, so you can just catch the best of SNL..
This week’s show: Zach Galifianakis
The Sketch of the week: New Balance
Why? Another late-in-the-show call, this commercial parody unfortunately hit too close to home! As an overweight white guy in his mid-forties, the fact that i'm wearing New Balance sneakers as I write this is not lost on me. This pre-tape was probably meant for the post-monolgue slot, but I'm guessing didn't play very well at the dress rehearsal. Still, as the target demographic, I found this very funny, and a nice, subtle version of Zach, after a lot of over-the-top characters he played in the live sketches.
